, victor, a u.s. official tells cnn the fbi was investigating a tip that david petraeus was involved in an extramarital affair with paula broadwell. she is his biographer. broadwell spent a year with petraeus in afghanistan interviewing him for the book she co-wrote about him. it's not clear whether broadwell is the woman with whom petraeus has admitted to having this affair that led to this resignation. the official says that the fbi counterintelligence unit investigated the tip to see if there was a potential security risk, whether petraeus could possibly be blackmailed. the official tells cnn there was no suggestion the fbi was investigating petraeus for any possible wrongdoing, but the concern, rather, was that he might be putting himself in a vulnerable position. >> we know that a lot of the questions from online that i've read, some of the comments on cnn.com, there's questions about the timing. let's start with what it comes after, the presidential election. what if we found out about that connection, if any, and why this comes just days after the election? >> reporter: well,
someone as lowly as an assistant u.s. attorney has to undergo a background check with very invasive questions and you are expected to tell the truth and you are asked under penalty of perjury. so you can increase that expoinentially. i am sure they would have liked to have known that information in a timely fashion. but i will tell you this -- and i do lament the personal ramifications, but the fact he has resigned has nothing to do with whether or not he will be subpoenaed to congress. i hope we don't have to subpoena a four-star general. i hope he would come voluntarily. but if he won't, he will be subpoenaed. none of with what happened today is a defense to a subpoena. >> greta: all right. would you agree that there is no sort of security problem, or even a blackmail problem, if for instance, his wife knew about it, and he had told the fbi or the cia, whoever conducted it, so he wasn't vulnerable to outside, someone coming in to try to influence him. would you agree to that? >> it could be. i mean, that's a very fact-intensive inquiry. it could be his wife knew, but his mother di

the women. so we created the female engagement team. with our interagency partners, the u.s. department of state, danish and british governments and of course the afghans, additionally we reached out to the private sector for partnerships, and not for profits to deliver things that we weren't capable of delivering or to cover gaps that arose as we implemented the plan. we implemented the plan through 17 teams through helman and our two female engagement teams. this is actually just scrolling pictures. sometimes a picture says a thousand words and i don't want to take you down the whole history of a year but i wanted to talk to you about how we framed this plan. this plan was framed into 5 pillars and the 5 pillars were students and parents, we attempted to build buy in and assure safety among the students. there was lots of fear of reprisals. by sending your kids to school there was fear that the taliban was going to knock on your door and let you know that that wasn't allowed. previously the taliban had instituted a medrossas so their only forms of education were religious schools
